Gilded Lily

24 Oct

I’m a Leo and for us there can never be enough gold! HaHa! So you know I am soooo (I refuse to say “totes” lol) loving this Balmain top. This piece can easily be worn during the day or night. I would pair with a pair of  jeans with a slight “boyfriend” feel but not too baggy and a pair of cute pumps. For a night out on the town , however, I would “gild the lily” so to speak by introducing a pair of gold jeans into the mix. Add golden open-toe sandals and accessories and you will feel like the Queen of the Night! Read on to shop the pieces!!!

For those of you who are already thinking “Spring” while updating your wardrobe this Fall, this Marc Jacobs butterfly-embellished dress will have just the effect you desire. Perfect for fair weather, this cocktail dress is great for Spring-time events. Pair the dress with open-toe heels and a bag in one of the colors featured on the butterflies. Here I have chosen purple. Tiny butterfly stud earring make a great addition to the ensemble. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

The Buterfly Effect

Witch Doctor

24 Sep

When I was a young girl, my cousin came to visit from Sweden. She was older than me and I was instantly in awe of her. I loved her accent, her beauty, and the fact that she was so different from everyone I knew at the time. I sat mesmerized as she told me stories of her work with a major record label and her travels around the world. As she told me about a trip to Africa, she removed a necklace from around her neck and gifted it to me. Recalling how she bought it from an actual witch doctor, she told me that it was a charm that was meant to prevent sickness. I wore that necklace everyday after and never took it off even when I showered. It eventually broke (probably because I never took it off) and I was so disheartened. I also immediately caught a cold! HaHa! Whether this was truly a magical necklace or if my mind was playing tricks on me, I will never know.

The statement necklace in this set reminds me of that necklace and my dear cousin Sofia. I decided to pair it with a funky ensemble that is, in my opinion, great for a date night or even a Girls Night Out (or a Girls Night In offered by the hubby). I love this leather jacket which would function as a top for this outfit. The necklace would look great sitting within that neckline. Pair the jacket with a monochrome print skirt and this becomes an outfit so hot that your man (and anyone else’s) will drop dead when you enter the room! Continue accessorizing with a similar statement bracelet, clutch, and sexy pumps. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Up Or Down

It’s obvious that I love this Kenzo print! I actually created this set awhile ago but neglected to post it. I love these pants as they can be dressed up or down. If you follow this blog, you know that I often choose pieces that add versatility to your wardrobe. Dress these colorful animal print pants up with a crop top, tuxedo-like blazer, and sexy black pumps such as the ones featured here. Dress down with a cropped t-shirt and wedges sneakers.

Maze-like patterns such as the one featured on this Milly dress from Stylebop.com were definitely a hot trend this year. Say “Farewell” to Summer with this bold geometric print. Match it with other geometric patterns such as with the square and round shapes of this Chloe bag and bangles. Matching Jessica Simpson sandals complete this “end of Summer” look. A cardigan is suggested for those cool September nights. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Neutral Zone

27 Apr

You can never go wrong when staying in the neutral zone when it comes to choosing an outfit. These colors are classic and look great on almost anyone. Pair them with metallic tone accessories to add a little pizzazz. For this particular set, I chose to go with gold to match the earth tones of the blouse and shorts. This would be a  great ‘fit for vacation and resort wear! Read on to shop the pieces!!!
